Summary
The history of early modern medicine often makes for depressing reading. It implies that people fell ill, took ineffective remedies and died. 'Misery to Mirth' seeks to rebalance and brighten our overall picture of early modern health by focusing on the neglected subject of recovery from illness in England, c.1580-1720. Drawing on an array of archival and printed materials, the text shows that recovery did exist conceptually at this time, and that it was a widely reported phenomenon.--
